An herbal tea, tisane, or ptisan is an herbal preparation made from anything other than the leaves of the tea bush (Camellia sinensis). Typically, herbal tea is simply the combination of boiling water and dried fruits, flowers or herbs.
Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds or roots, generally by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. Seeds and roots can also be boiled on a stove. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served. Many companies produce herbal tea bags for such infusions.

Teh herba, tisane, atau ptisan adalah persediaan herba yang diperbuat dari apa saja selain daun-daun teh (Camellia sinensis). Biasanya, teh herba hanyalah gabungan dari air yang sedang mendidih dan kering buah-buahan, bunga atau tumbuh-tumbuhan.
Teh herba boleh dilakukan dengan bunga segar atau kering, daun, biji atau akar, umumnya dengan menuangkan air mendidih selama bahagian tanaman dan membiarkan mereka meresap selama beberapa minit. Biji dan akar juga boleh direbus. Tisane tersebut kemudian ditapis, ditambah jika dikehendaki, dan dihidang. Banyak syarikat menghasilkan uncang teh herba untuk hidangan tersebut.
